. Write a nuclear equation showing the bombardment of heryllium-9 with alpha particles, resulting in production of carbon-12 and a neutron.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret balanced nuclear equation for bombardment of beryllium with alpha particle to produce carbon and neutron.

Concept Introduction:

The decaying of an atom takes place by three type of decay such as alpha decay, beta decay, gama decay.

In alpha decay, an alpha particle with mass 4m and electron 2e removed from nuclide while in beta decay two type of decay are possible beta (+) and beta (-). In gamma decay, nuclide will remain same to the original one.

Explanation

The balanced nuclear equation for bombardment of beryllium with alpha particle is follows:

4Be9+2He4
